COUNTDOWN IS BACK THIS JANUARY, 2019 ... ON rage !!!!! Stay tuned below with regular Countdown full archival information for each Countdown episode rage shall be airing every Saturday throughout January ...
Rage should certainly play those remaining episodes and those segments. The ones they've aired have been very entertaining and a fantastic snapshot of that era. I reckon I would have been a huge fan had I been old enough then - certainly much better than most shows these days that's for sure!
I'd never even heard of Flashez until Rage played them a few years ago. Needless to say I became an instant fan.
And that's what appeals to me,the segments in particular capture the essence of 70's Australia-just as Countdown did for both the 70's and the 80's. I'm just glad that they weren't wiped along with the actual shows.
The library at the Australian Film & TV School had an episode of Flashez in its collection. I saw it in 1986. I'm pretty sure it was an off-air recording on U-Matic tape. Have they been checked for missing episodes?
